Reduced from £100 says ex display but opened mine at home and everything was sealed as new. Had quite a few that I could see and even more of the 900-70 versions for the same price also reduced. This was in the Manchester market street store

Used to own one of these...

For seeing the moon or other less distant objects they're great

For seeing planets... less so.

At one point I was going to splurge on a Nexstar but went against it in the end as the UK is too cloudy!

which is the best to buy please

sold out as returns

A bit small for a Newtonian reflector anyway. Mind you if you can get to somewhere with reasonably dark skies you should be able to see planets and the odd deep sky object in decent detail. I bet Newton would have loved such a large telescope when he first made this type but then skies would have been so much darker then.

So good enough to spy on the neighbour then.

Someone might be using this to spy on Uranus from across the street ?

I just went and picked one. There were 2 left however, I don't think these are necessary ex-display. i found a receipt slip in mine saying it's been returned to shop because of a fault. I've called them and they were a bit confused and still insist they're ex-display so i'll give it a go as i have 21 days to return it but a word of caution so you know to try it out properly. the price is bargain though.

hooray.henry

​Yes, and the ring should be quite clear.

these are awful, not so much the optics, which sure aren't great, but more the positioning, adjustment of the legs, to find stuff, etc.
but for £20 it's a good way to find out if you care enough to spend more I guess!
